AANViS Gears Up to Shape Alberta's Noise Regulations

Municipalities across Alberta are grappling with the complexities of managing noise pollution, often facing challenges in decision-making for regulatory approvals. Simultaneously, the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) is in the process of amending Rule 012. Despite multiple iterations and a dedicated meeting, the proposed amendments are yet to reach an optimal state.

Recognizing the need for a comprehensive and effective approach, AANViS believes that its members and board are uniquely positioned to contribute valuable insights to enhance noise and vibration regulations in Alberta. We are reaching out to our members to gather input and expressions of interest on the following critical matters:

1.       Proposing a Unified Alberta Noise and Vibration Policy:

AANViS aims to present to the province a consolidated noise and vibration policy that transcends operations and sources, offering an improved and streamlined version of existing regulations.

2.       Interim Measures: Comments on AUC Rule 012 Amendments:

As an interim measure, AANViS is actively seeking comments and input on the proposed amendments to AUC Rule 012. Your perspectives will play a pivotal role in refining the regulations.

3.       Sharing Best Practices:

AANViS invites members to share any successful or innovative practices they've implemented in the absence of local bylaws or municipal policies. Your experiences could pave the way for effective solutions.
